Last week, Dr. Steven Schuster, Medical Director of Oncology Research at UC Health, presented a primer on clinical cancer research focusing on targeted therapy including cancer genetics and immunotherapy.  One of the primary goals of cancer therapy research is to eliminate, or at least diminish, the role of traditional chemotherapy .

The Community Grants committee awarded $1,500 to The Center for Family Outreach.  RCFC's grant will purchase art materials so that students may express themselves in a safe, non-alienating and non-confrontational outlet.  The Center for Family Outreach has been in existence since December 2000, with the mission of helping Larimer County youth (8-18) and their families achieve and sustain long-term positive changes and healthy relationships.  This is your local Charities donations at work.  Thanks Rotarians!!
Last week, FCRC member and self-described polymath Bob Meroney presented, “James Pierson Beckwourth: Black Mountain Man; Gaudy Liar?” (Spoiler alert - much of the content of his “tall tales” may be true).
Mountain men of the expanding West (think the lands of the Louisiana Purchase and later beyond) tended to be colorful characters, often with a picturesque appearance and sometimes famous for their storytelling.  After all, they were often alone in sparsely-inhabited places, so who could refute their tales?
Community Grants Committee members Sally Lee and Kent Sutherland presented a Youth Grant to Respite Care of Fort Collins.  Executive Director LeAnn Massey accepted the $3,500 check.   Your Local Charities contributions at work in our community!  
On July 3, in recognition of the upcoming 4th of July celebration, RCFC member Henry Weisser presented a review of the American Revolution that pointed out many background aspects of the conflict and results of the conflict that put Britain in a much better light than we normally see in our history books.
